A "third party" is any person or company that injures a worker while the worker is working for – employer. When a third party causes an injury through negligent activities, the injured worker can recover compensation from that other company, as well as from the workers compensation. A third party claim generally provides monetary damages that are greater in amount and value than the workers' compensation benefits that would be available for the same injury.
